Danny is 3 years 7 months. He started having issues at 6 months old. He was 18 pounds from his 6 month checkup until just after he turned 2. We tried Neocate Jr and he gained 2 pounds in two weeks then he flatlined again for 6 months. He started enzymes and gained 6 pounds in two months, then 4 pounds in two months, and now he has pretty much stalled since last summer. He raised his enzyme dosage to see if that helps and he go back 3/10 to see if he has gained anything as a result...

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

Nyla just turned 6. She was born small, but did pretty good until she was about 11 months old when she weighed 16 lbs, then started to fall down her curve.

Brandon was also small, and very close to the same size at a year (they were both 16 lbs.) We did fortified breastmilk 2 times a day and extra calories in everything he ate. Nothing was helping. At 20 months he was 19 pounds, and had tubes put in his ears for chronic ear infections. I dont know if it was coincidence or not, but after that he took off and reached 23 pounds by his second birthday; the biggest of all 4 of my kids at 2 years old. Ever since he had done well, and is now 3 years 5 months and about 29 1/2 pounds.

Big thanks to KimberlyD0 for my amazing siggy

Since birth. Kiersten was 4lbs 4oz, and had to stay in the NICU for two and 1/2 weeks until she figured out how to suck and swallow. She would not nurse and could only take about 2 ounces at a time up until she was about 8 months old. She refused all solid foods from the moment of introduction . At 18 months she would only take about 4 oz of pedisure at a time and would eat nothing. That's when she was put on an NG tube.
